Hi folk, here is my contacts reply

Thanks for all your help


Hi Norrie, further to our earlier conversation when someone said it was Gallowgate looking west from Bain Street, the layout certainly matches the maps I have, which would make the pub, just where the Thames Trader is passing, the Lovat Arms at number 267. The hairdressers might have been called Valente's, can any former 'Caltonian' confirm? Also, the little glimpse of the white building just inside McFarlane Street matches the building layout perfectly on the map, making it numbers 5 to 7.

Ordnance Survey map 6064NW refers.

If you can pinpoint any establishment, the Kelly's Directory (1924-1974) and the old Glasgow Directory books at The Mitchell Library can sometimes be of help.

This is definately Bain Square looking west down the Gallowgate towards Glasgow Cross.




I had relatives staying near that area. We visited them at weekends, school holidays, etc. Though most of the tenements above these shops shown here are long gone, the street layout`s identical today.

THE ORANGE HOOP is where various wee grub shops opened. The one you`ll might recall wascalled The Hole In The Wall. (Out of the left side of this shot would be Sneddons` tiny wee paper shop (at the east corner) beneath the Barrowland Ballroom. THE PURPLE ARROW is the street you head north to access into the Fire Station, which sits halfway up that street on it`s right (east) side. THE RED SQUARE is where the Eastenders boozer now sits. THE GREEN SQUARE is where a chippy now is, ran by the same Greek brothers who ran Cha Papa`s chippy in the 70`s , (now called The World`s Oldest Chippy), further west in that photo down on (the west side of) Little Dovehill, which connects the Gallowgate with Bell St. This renamed chippy is opposite that stone tower, YELLOW HOOP, which sits atop a tenement (which runs between Little Dovehill and Great Dovehill, above what was once Reeta Fashions, I think it was called). A Bike Shop sits (east side) of Little Dovehill/Gallowgate right underneath that stone tower. (If it still stands).

This photo was taken from the tenement right above the present-day oyster shop beside the newsagents on east Bain Square. Wow! Look at them tram lines going down the Gallowgate!

Here`a 70`s photo, from UG, taken from outside The Trader`s Boozer, just right of the GREEN SQUARE (and outta shot) in the black and white and points south into Bain Square.



That`s the public lavvy just right of that police box in the middle there. (Guess The Doctor musta dropped by for a slosh!). The black and white shot was taken from the building just on this colour photo`s left margin.

In your Orange circle I got my first Tattoo in there bunked off school got steaming drunk on "Chammy" in the morning and decided by the afternoon a Tattoo was a brilliant idea.

My heed wiz nippin the following day and so was my arm. My maw went mental was going into to Terry's to boot his balls... She thought it was him gone done did it as it seems he tattooed another member of our clan when they were wrecked... That one resulted in a Hoopy changing allegiances after waking up with a dutch guy on a horse.
